I had an amazing meeting yesterday that was amazing. It made me realize how important it is to have a book on Project Management and work on my expertise about building this skill set in terms of careers and entrepreneurship.
I have in my mind the plan to create a book about project management and how to implement this career path for new and seasoned professionals, too.
My four books are published and I have two in the Entrepreneur-ING series and two in the College and Career Readiness series. I am working on another book in the College and Career Readiness Series all about how to be successful in the workplace for those new to careers, too. I think this next series will be the Project Management Series with two books - one about how to be a project manager and one about passing the PMP exam, which I did in 2004.
For the first book in Project Management, I would start off with just the same 11-12 chapter outline that I have used for my other books that are published and my word count would be the same 15k-22k that I have been doing with my other books.
I am considering the following chapter plan:
Chapter 1 What it Means to be a Project Manager
Chapter 2 Skills Needed to be a Project Manager Planning Scheduling Motivating
Chapter 3 Career Options in Project Management
Chapter 4 How to Position Yourself in Project Management
Chapter 5 Industries to use Project Management
Chapter 6 Hacks to PM Skills (such as planning scheduling motivating)
Chapter 7 Continued Learning in Project Management
Chapter 8 Why You Need to be Certified in Project Management
Chapter 9 Pitfalls in the PM Career Path
Chapter 10 Positives in the Career Path
Chapter 11 Preview of Next Book on Passing the PMP exam
What do you think? Happy Hunting!
